Two earthquakes, two vastly different consequences. If anything makes you appreciate solid foundations (not to mention building codes), it's the sight of those San Diego buildings swaying -- but not falling -- in Sunday's 7.0 quake; the same size quake that devastated Haiti. When it comes to our economy, however, the foundations look anything but secure.

There's a revolution happening in Standing Rock, at the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ camp, and across the country. Over 200 indigenous American nations and 6,000 people have travelled to the community in an unprecedented act of solidarity. Catalyzed by the fight against Dakota Access Pipeline, Native American tribes are protecting their water, but even more, protecting their sovereignty in the face of a colonialist State. In a time when we still celebrate Christopher Columbus, violent colonizer, the...

But without a public option, is this really health care reform we can believe in?

The job of the journalist is not to give people a voice, filmmaker Miki Chakarova explains to her students: "People have a voice," she says, "It's just that they don't have an outlet." In her recent film, The Price of Sex, Chakarova went to great lengths to provide that outlet by embedding herself in the world of Eastern European sex trafficking. The resulting film is an intimate portrait of the individuals that comprise an industry, and the way that corruption thrives in...

As everyone probably knows, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis in 1968 by an assassin's bullet, but it's often forgotten that he was in Memphis joining the sanitation workers' fight for fair wages and working conditions. King's support for labor, particularly low-wage public workers, was a theme of his work for most of his life, and to honor that legacy, we bring you a segment of the speech he gave to those workers the day before his death.

They made a case for censoring online ads for sex work and increasing law enforcement power and resources to police sex work. They stated that they were doing this to end violence against young people in the sex trade. Melissa Gira Grant is a writer, a contributor to...

The attack on the Charlie Hebdo staff in Paris, January 7th, wasn't necessarily the work of a complex terrorist conspiracy, but it could still rebound to the benefit of groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda, says Middle East correspondent and author, Patrick Cockburn. It all depends on the reaction of the West. More war, he says, will breed more violent reaction.
